FLOCAL by Flotech Performance Systems – Safe, Accurate & Repeatable Additive Injector Calibration

At Flotech Performance Systems we have drawn upon 30 years’ experience in additive injection systems to launch the world’s first closed loop additive calibration device – the FLOCAL.

FLOCAL provides accurate & repeatable calibration without exposing engineers to potentially harmful additives or vapours.

FLOCAL combines inlet diverter valve, calibration cylinder, graduated piston gauge, outlet diverter valve and sample return pump in one compact device.

FLOCAL captures additive in a built-in calibration cylinder from which volume can be read using its graduated piston gauge. Once volume is recorded, the FLOCAL’s integral pump exhausts the contents of the calibration cylinder via a dedicated outlet which can be piped to slops or back to tank.

The unique design of the FLOCAL makes it the first true closed loop additive calibration device. Using FLOCAL during calibration makes the process safer, quicker and more efficient.

  • Integrated calibration cylinder with graduated piston gauge in 1cc increments provides more accurate results than using a simple calibration jar.
  • Closed loop design means operators are no longer exposed to potentially dangerous additives.
  • Integrated sample return pump prevents additive used during calibration from being wasted – it can simply be returned to tank.
  • Optional 100cc and 350cc Calibration Cylinders ensure performance across a diverse range of treat rates.
  • Optional Thermal Relief Bypass allow for thermal expansion when the unit is idle, negating the need to purge the system after use.

The 8” Brodie BiRotor Plus PD Meter is Now Available Exclusively in the UK through Flotech Performance Systems



We are delighted to announce that the best in class Brodie BiRotor Plus PD meter is now available in an 8 inch version. The 8 inch version displays the same performance characteristics as other BiRotor Plus meters with a maximum flow range up to 3,300 BPH.




During extensive type testing at the NMI flow laboratory in East Kilbride, Scotland, the 8 inch meter displayed very little shift in linearity on viscosities ranging from 0.2 cSt to 1040 cSt. Perfect for both upstream and refined product pipelines.

For more information on any of the Brodie International range of Flow Meters and Flow Control Valves please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Top Safety Accreditation for Flotech Performance Systems

SafeContractor Accreditation Sticker BWe are delighted to announce that we have again been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Flotech have done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

For further information, contact:

Will Parrett – Internal Systems Manager


Note to Editors:

Alcumus SafeContractor is a third party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice.

Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation. Over 300 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

FLOBLOCK Injector – Now with Dual Pulse Flow Sensor

The new FLOBLOCK Additive Injector from Flotech Performance Systems is now available with a Dual Pulse Flow Sensor. 

The unique design of the FLOBLOCK incorporates features which combined make it the most efficient and reliable injector on the market.

  • Integrated flow control valve allows fine tuning of additive flow and facilitates calibration under true process conditions for more accurate injection rates and reduced additive wastage.
  • Integral filter prevents contamination entering the meter or the solenoid.
  • Inbuilt non-return valve prevents additive contamination caused by reverse flow.
  • One-piece stainless construction & static seals ensures robust, leak-free performance.
  • Common bolting pattern and inlet / outlet positions allow direct replacement of most common injectors (adaptors are available where bolting patterns differ).
  • Optional dual pulse flow meter provides pulse redundancy to prevent unwanted shutdowns.
  • Optional stainless-steel gears and PTFE seals ensure performance across a diverse range of chemicals and additives.

FLOBLOCK is held in stock in all derivatives and supported by an extensive spares inventory and expert technical support by our UK facility.

Using the FLOCAL calibration kit (available separately), FLOBLOCK can be quickly, safely and accurately calibrated.

Based upon a product flow rate of 2400 LPM, the Standard Flow Injector is suitable for 100-3000 ppm (typical shot size of 20-200cc). The Low Flow Injector is suitable for 20-600 ppm (typical shot size of 10-40cc).
